Infoprint 6500 family

The Infoprint 6500 family has models with maximum print speeds from 500 to 2,000 lpm, and with an array of features that can be used to customize the printer for many applications and attachments. The breadth of the Infoprint 6500 family offers common features across the range of printer speeds.

IBM Printer Management Utility

When ordered with one of the following LAN or wireless Ethernet interfaces (#4177, #5180, #4542, #4544, or #4545), the Infoprint 6500 natively supports the IBM Printer Management Utility (PMU). This utility provides a database from which the user can have real-time visibility to printer status and ribbon life for every Infoprint 6500 and 6700 installed on their network.

Using the database, a remote user can quickly create master configurations, and then download them to multiple printers simultaneously. If microcode updates are required, the PMU also enables new microcode to easily be downloaded to multiple printers. If a simple configuration change is required, or for problem determination, the PMU allows the use of a virtual operator panel, thereby providing the operator with complete control over the printer.

The Print Management Utility also provides proactive printer monitoring by immediately notifying the appropriate operators when assistance is required. At the moment an alert occurs, a message indicating the type of alert is sent via e-mail to the specific operator tasked with resolving that class of alert. For example, when a "ribbon low" alert is generated by a printer, an e-mail will be sent to the person responsible for installing new ribbons on the printer.

The IBM Printer Management Utility can be downloaded by going to:

http://www.printers.ibm.com
  1. Choose "Downloads and Drivers"
  2. Then choose Infoprint 6500

Intelligent Ribbon System and Ultra Capacity Ribbons

The customer replaceable Ultra Capacity 50M character ribbon, in conjunction with the capabilities of the printer and the Printer Management Utility, delivers the following unique benefits:

  • The ability for the operator to use a standard printer feature called Ribbonminder, which allows the operator to specify a desired ribbon life end point.
  • Helps to eliminate costly reprints and unacceptable output by taking advantage of the Infoprint 6500?s Intelligent Ribbon System, which enables the printer to stop printing and alert the appropriate operator when a new ribbon is needed, and then automatically detect when a new ribbon is installed, and reset Ribbonminder accordingly.
  • The Infoprint 6500 Ultra Capacity 50 Million character ribbon is optimized for report printing, text printing, bar code label printing, and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) printing.

EuroReady

The Infoprint 6500 Models v5P, v05, v1P, v10, v15, and v20 are EuroReady and can print the euro symbol. The host software must be capable of sending the correct euro symbol information to the printer.

Operational commonality

You can operate the Infoprint 6500 Models v5P, v05, v1P, v10, v15, and v20 in much the same way as the previous IBM 6400 models. These models demonstrate a commonality in areas such as loading and unloading of forms, and the availability of coax, twinax, Ethernet, Code V, IGP, IPDS, Proprinter III XL, Epson FX 1050, Printronix P-Series, and Printronix P-Series XQ Variant emulations.

Power Stacker (#4895)

This feature provides an optional Power Stacker for the Infoprint 6500 Models v10, v15, and v20. There is no Power Stacker available for the Model v05. The Power Stacker cannot be ordered as an MES, and installed in the field. It can only be ordered on an initial order for a new printer.

The stacker is fully enclosed within the printer cabinet.

During printing, a vertically movable paper guide stacks the printed output. Nonmarking pinch rollers allow for varying paper thickness and provide constant tension on the paper. The pinch rollers are conducive to reducing the electrostatic charge buildup on the paper.

Two infrared beams sense the paper height and cause the frame position to be controlled as the paper height increases. A paper motion detector mounted at the pinch roller station monitors proper paper movement. If a jam occurs in the stacker, the motion detector senses it and stops the printer.

There is a stacker control panel mounted inside the rear of the printer. The operator sets up the stacker operation from the stacker control panel. Two LEDs indicate power on and online conditions. Push buttons are provided for on/off line, form feed, stacker up, and stacker down.

The stacker operates by raising and lowering the stacking mechanism to adjust to the stack height.

(#4841) IGP and Code V - Initial Order (#5846) IGP and Code V- MES Order

IGP

The IGP (Intelligent Graphics Processor) feature is a simple to use programming language for creating sophisticated graphics, including bar codes, in printers equipped with the IGP board. IGP (also sometimes called PGL) creates on-line forms, bar codes, and has a variety of alphanumeric text-generation capabilities.

Code V

The Code V feature is the QMS**-compatible Intelligent Graphics Processor software designated for the IBM 64XX family of impact line matrix printers. Code V emulates the QMS Code V Version II programming language to produce on-line forms, bar code, and supports many alphanumeric text-generation capabilities.

  • Prerequisites: IBM 6500 Models v5P, v05, v1P, v10, v15, and v20
  • Compatibility Conflicts: This feature cannot be installed with:
    • ANSI Emulation (#4521)
    • Thai Autocompose (#4651)
  • Maximum: One of either 4841 or 5846 per machine
  • Customer Setup: Yes, for both #4841 and #5846
  • Field Installation: Yes, as #5846
  • Initial Order: Yes, as #4841
(#4895) Power Stacker - Initial Order Only

This feature provides an optional power stacker for the IBM 6500 Models v10, v15 and v20. There is no Power Stacker available for the Model v0top The power stacker cannot be ordered as an MES, and installed in the field. It can only be ordered on an initial order for a new printer.

The stacker is fully enclosed within the printer cabinet.

During printing, a vertically movable paper guide stacks the printed output. Non-marking pinch rollers allow for varying paper thickness and provides constant tension on the paper. The pinch rollers are conducive to reducing the electrostatic charge buildup on the paper.

Two infrared beams sense the paper height and cause the frame position to be controlled as the paper height in-creases. A paper motion detector mounted at the pinch roller station monitors proper paper movement. If a jam occurs in the stacker, the motion detector senses it and stops the printer.

There is a stacker control panel mounted inside the rear of the printer.The operator sets up the stacker operation from the stacker control panel. Two LEDs indicate power on and on-line conditions. Push buttons are provided for on/off line, form feed, stacker up and stacker down.

The stacker operates by raising and lowering the stacking mechanism to adjust to the stack height.

(#4640) Black Back Forms Sensor - Initial (#4641) Black Back Forms Sensor - MES

This feature provides a forms sensor which is capable of detecting the end-of-forms (EOF) condition for Black-Backed Forms. It may also be used to run forms with binder holes in the body of the form. Because of the variation in the size of binder holes, testing is recommended to verify that the sensor accommodates the size of the binder holes correctly.

The standard EOF sensor is modified such that the EOF optical sensor senses the forward travel of the forms motion arm at EOF, instead of directly sensing the white or light paper. The modified EOF sensor is slightly less precise than the standard sensor, as it is affected by forms tension and the mechanical nature of the forms motion arm.

The Wireless Ethernet 10/100BaseT NIC Adapter is an internal adapter to connect the printer to an Ethernet wireless network using IPDS, TCP/IP, NetBIOS TCP/IP, and IPX. This Network Interface Card (NIC) is an internal adapter and does not use the parallel port.

When the IPDS Feature (FN 4861, 7866) is installed with these features, the Wireless Ethernet 10/100 BaseT NIC can be used for IPDS.

These adapters provide the capability to provide printer status information via a Web page when the printer's IP address is supplied to a standard Web browser. This is in addition to the function provided by the IBM Printer Management Utility.

Wireless operation requires that the customer obtain a PCMCIA radio card such as the Symbol LA-4121-1100-US, or the Cisco AIR-LMC352, or the equivalent.

The wireless antenna is included with these features.
